“Lost Borders” by Mary Hunter Austin, Conclusion

Play

The interconnected story cycle “Lost Borders” by Mary Hunter Austin concludes. Austin’s character types and settings are in many ways familiar from other westerns, but her perspectives are feminist, conservationist, and anti-gun. She died in 1934, and her books soon went out of print—just as Hollywood was establishing its masculinist myths of a Wild West dominated by gun violence.

Although Austin offers sympathetic portrayals of male psychology throughout, female characters are central to the final two stories, with the frontier allowing women to push against social boundaries. In “The House of Offence” (read by Lauren Robert), a deteriorating fence represents the social dividing line temporarily crossed when an upstanding Christian woman reckons with the humanity of the madam who runs the brothel next door. The title character of “The Walking Woman” (read by Sarah Torbeck) triumphs through love and work in a harsh communion with the land.

Jack Hanek hosts. Sarah Torbeck has read the role of the author throughout. The recurring poem that appeared at the beginning of the original book is read by Berklea Going. Special music comes from the album River of Light: American Short Works for Violin and Piano (Naxos, 2011), as performed by Tim Fain and Pei-Yao Wang. Books Unbound is produced, written and edited by Cynthia Wolfe with assistance from Sarah Torbeck.

Books Unbound – “Lost Borders” by Mary Hunter Austin, Part 4

Play

The interconnected stories of ‘’Lost Borders’’ are set in the desert landscape of southern California, where author Mary Hunter Austin moved with her mother and brothers in 1888 at the age of twenty. The ailing Austin found strength in this challenging environment, and came to regard the land as a central character in her writing.

The Books Unbound podcast presents the stories in the order of the original book, which will differ from the broadcast: “The Pocket-Hunter’s Story,” read by Frank Buczolich, with a web-extra introduction on pocket-prospecting from Austin’s first book, ‘’Land of Little Rain’’; “The Readjustment” (Katy Ratcliffe); and “Bitterness of Women” (Berklea Going, who also reads recurring fragments from the poem that appeared as the book’s epigraph). This episode’s stories show in particular Austin’s skill at balancing both sympathetic and critical perspectives on male psychology—with a frisson of the supernatural and the monstrous.

Jack Hanek hosts. Special music comes from the album River of Light (Naxos, 2011), as performed by violinist Tim Fain and pianist Pei-Yao Wang. Books Unbound is produced, written and edited by Cynthia Wolfe with assistance from Sarah Torbeck.

“‘Lost Borders’ by Mary Hunter Austin, Part Four” was produced during WFHB’s Spring Fund Drive, and contains messages from the Books Unbound community. For information on how to support this and other programs from WFHB, call 812-323-1200 or visit wfhb.org.
